grown tired of what their country was come to represent under george w. bush. obama promised to change at home and abroad. he brought an end to the war in iraq. he said u.s. combat forces would pull out of afghanistan by the end of 2014. and he promised to decimate al qaeda. >> after a firefight, they killed osama bin laden and took custody of his body. we can say to those families who lost loved ones to al qaeda's terror justice has been done. >> some argue obama has not met expectations in the mideast. he faced persistent trouble with a come dominant region in iran. still he has focused foreign policy to make it more multilateral. part of what he calls a broader shift. >> after a decade in which we fought two wars that cost us dearly, the united states is turning to the vast potential of the asia pacific region. >> obama turned his attention at home to pushing through health care reform, something president after president had tried to do. he succeeded with what became known as obama care, the most significant overhaul since medicare and medicaid in the 1960s. he pushed to shore up b
? >> for my thinking, the biggest change in the race is to obama's favor and that's been this storm, you know. any day that we're not talking about the economy and jobs, that we're not talking about obama's record for debt and deficits, health care, energy, any day we're talking about something else, that's good for obama, and so i will be surprised if he doesn't make a little bit of a comeback here. he's had a prett pretty solid mt for a month. there wasn't anything happehe m. what may stop it is this storm and not so much that the president will do a great job, although i don't have any doubt that he will. mostly what happens right after a terrible storm is we know where i come from, it's the local first responders. it's the firemen, the policeman, the highway patrolmen, the national guardsmen, the mayors, the governors, but the federal government has a role to play, a bigger role down the road, but the biggest thing is changing the subject is great for obama. he's been trying to change the subject all year. >> greta: let's talk about timing. if he changes the subject, for instance, monday

at current president obama's position on climate change. in reality, few office holders past, present or would-be have spent any political capital to battle global warming despite the fact that 2012 stands as a year when climate change became an undeniable reality. according to the oceanic and atmospheric administration the first nine months were the warmest on weather. the drought that ravaged the midwest destroying crops was the worst in half a century. wildfires that burned through 14,000 acres, an area of size of maryland were some of the most devastating on record and this summer arctic ice melted to its lowest levels since satellites began taking measurement a pattern that may have contributed to hurricane sandy. joining us now via skype is author and environmentalist bill mckiben. are you skyped in? are why there? >> low carbon footprint given the fact you are remote and not sitting with us on set. we're happy to have you on show. i want to talk about a number of things but first and foremost is sandy. this is going to hopefully engender a conversation about climate change alth

change problem until we solve the money in politics president obama because money has flooded politics to a degree where they've effectively shut down our politicians' efforts of fixing this. >> yes campaign finance reform, it has been lost as a topic. however, the real problem is that fossil fuels are still the cheapest energy because we subsidize them. the taxpayers subsidize them, and we do not make fossil fuels pay for their cost to society. air pollution and water pollution from fossil fuels, if you get asthma or any other illness from the air and water pollution you have to pay for that yourself. not the fossil fuel companies. these climate effects $20 billion effect of this storm, who is going to pay for that? the taxpayer, not the fossil fuel industry. we need to add collective fee from the fossil fuel company and distribute that money to the public so that will--the fee will cause them to increase the price of fossil fuels but the people will then have money to make the decisions of what energy they're going to use. gradually we would move away from fossil fuels as this fee ri

change and it helps make crystal clear that the choice that president barack obama is putting in front of the country and why they are discouraged or confused and that's why building the relationship and the block cap pens and volunteers that are pulling the vote, driving with vans to get people to early vote in ohio and milwaukee as we speak. it's so incredibly critical. >> mary kay, jamal simmons, thank you both for your time tonight. >> thank you. >>> coming up, uncovering the republican effort to suppress the vote in florida. there's a leak to the ugly past and we're revealing it tonight. the chairman of the florida republican party tells it all. next.

, that president obama is ahead at the moment today. that, of course, can change in the next six days. but generally i think the popular vote and the electoral vote are going to go to the same person. if something happens over the next weekend, if as shawn was saying the republicans ground game is truly as much better now from 2008, then, you know, it can swing the other way. but i think at the end of the day those two numbers, the lorl vote and the popular vote are going to line up. >> great to have you both on the program, thank you. >>> sandy may have moved out of the northeast but obviously it's still wreaking havoc. these pictures are from early this morning over bricktown, new jersey, where a massive fire destroyed 14 homes two days ago and rekindled overnight. authorities believe natural gas lines are to blame. because of the damage in the area crews have not been able to get to the scene. natalie morales took a chopper ride over the destruction along the jersey shore and we will have an update from her in just a few minutes. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 this morning, i'm going to trad
